Why they call is "smart" case ???

The case comes with what NZXT calls a CAM-powered "smart device". It provides most of the functionality from RGB LED (Hue+) and Fan controller (Grid+ V3) combined into a single device and pre-installed into the case. The "smart" part mostly seems to refer to a new adaptive noise reduction feature for the case fans.

Hi, great build but I wished you could always use sleeved cable/extensions and cable combs to give your builds a more consistent colour scheme and a cleaner look.

If you're going to build any Ryzen system at this point, you should in all honesty just wait til April for the 2nd generation Ryzen 2000 series to come out so you can get a brand new, latest & greatest R5 2600/X. This instead of feeling like a complete fool because you bought last years hardware brand new, literally a mere month before it was replaced by better parts.

Lol hahaha so basically just wait a few more weeks and buy a newer & faster 12nm Zen+ based Ryzen 5 2600X, instead of last years 14nm Zen based 1600X; that way you WON'T HAVE TO BE THAT GUY! ; ) Buying an older B350 board like you'd planned instead of a brand new B450 model might be a good idea though; depending on the price gap & feature differences of course.

As Cooe said, if you are going to build a system with Ryzen you should wait for the next generation, it is also the worst moment to buy a video card, you should wait to see if the prices come down, also do not go for the series ''X'', is a simple overclock that you can also do yourself.

About Antivirus, that's a personal thing but personally I think that with Windows Defender Windows 10 is more than enough you also have Avira Free Antivirus. I recommend the SeaSonic brand if you are going to choose a power supply, they are the best.

About the SSD, I think it's also a personal thing, but if you're going to maintain the operating system, and some applications 250GB will suffice, and maybe also if you want to put your favorite games.

The case is something that is totally personal, but if you want more recommendations you can find more better designs, I recommend the NZXT S340 (or Elite) or Phanteks Eclipse P300/400.

The monitor you should make sure you can only run your games at 60FPS or if you can at 144FPS you could go for a 144Hz one. And I forgot, about the cooler, you do not need to add one since Ryzen brings them, I'm not sure if the next generation will bring it but I guess so.

That is all and I hope I have helped you.

A blog post isn't really the best place to ask for build help -- I'd suggest you try posting this over in our Part List Opinions Wanted forum instead. Lots of folks ready and willing to help out! You can also check out the staff Build Guides for more build ideas if you're interested.
